The project is seeking funds from various investors, with the pre-production costs to be met through crowdfunding. The creative team behind this sinister production are campaigning for funds through the platform IndieGoGo with only ten days till deadline and need the help of the crowd.

Bigger & Badder; Crowdfunded Horror Film With Bite

It is unheard of for a film review to grace the pages of the Gazette however an exception is being made since it culminates in coverage of a project that has come full circle. The Bigger & Badder crowdfunding project first featured in the Gazette back in December 2011, as part of a post looking at the emergence of independent British horror films. It was featured again in August 2012 following the campaign's success having secured more than the funds needed, which principally used to cover the costs of special effects and make up. The film was completed thanks to a team of dedicated cast and crew who volunteered their services, as well as the production efforts of Paul  Banner and Laura Carter.
